Today, I’m guesting for my lovely and talented journalist friend, Emily. She has been focusing on the Stations of the Cross, and we shall focus on Jesus Crucified.
the Word who was made Flesh
to the humid heat of bodies mingling at the foot of the cross,
to the tears of Mother Mary
to the murmur of sinful syllables
spoken for the Word’s death.
the Word who spoke
the tree seed into existence
its roots cut open mother earth’s womb
as limbs reached up, branches contained life and death,
did You, the Word, the Word made flesh
watch as Your cross grew?
